On 6th February 2022, Her Majesty The Queen became the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, marking 70 years of service to the people of the United Kingdom, the Realms and the Commonwealth.
To celebrate this unprecedented anniversary, Taylor’s Port, a Royal Warrant Holder to HM The Queen decided to bottle a Very Very Old Tawny Port. The component wines for this limited-edition bottling have been individually selected and blended by Taylor’s blenders. The attention to detail in the cellars is displayed on the palate of this extraordinary wine, where notes of anise, marzipan, quince, and subtle hints of butterscotch, overlaid with astonishing refinement and balanced acidity. The decades of ageing in wood have concentrated this wine almost to an essence, producing intense, complex nutty and spicy aromas, elevated by a crisp acidity which gives the wine an attractive freshness.
